Homework provides an opportunity for your child to share his/her learning with you. At Swalecliffe, the emphasis is placed on Reading, Spelling and Times Tables. Creating a love of reading in children is potentially one of the most powerful ways of helping a child to make progress across the curriculum and in life. Practising spelling and times tables regularly improves children’s rapid recall, helping them to store information in their long-term memories. This frees up their working memory so that they can more readily learn new skills.
